I scribbled down this recipe when our family visited the Cooperstown Farm Museum more than 25 years ago. I must have gotten it right, because these biscuits turn out great every time. —Patricia Kile, Elizabeth, Pennsylvania

"Quite good, and easy enough to make. Would've liked them to have been a little lighter and fluffier. Still looking for that really light and fluffy."

"Unfortunately I didn't care for these at all. They rose nicely and were light and fluffy but even though I added an extra tbsp. of butter they still tasted like baking powder. I much prefer the buttermilk cheddar biscuits posted on this site."

"This is the best recipe for homemade biscuits I have ever made. For years I have looked for a recipe that would make biscuits like my Mom had made when I was young; my search is over. This are BIG biscuits, no matter how you cut them because the rise is big. They aren't heavy, because there isn't much fat in them and the buttermilk (I made my own, I never seem to have any on hand) keeps the biscuit tender not hard. Really great biscuit recipe. Thank you for sharing."

"I just made these this morning to go with some homemade apple butter I made yesterday. I did use half whole wheat pastry flour to add some more whole grain into the mix. Very easy and tasty."

"These biscuits are light, tender, and rise to a really nice height. And I do feel better that they are lower fat. There seems to be just a little something missing in the flavor, but I'm sure that's from them being lower fat! I'd give them a 4.5 star rating if I could. I covered my baking sheet with the foil-backed parchment paper to avoid having to use anything to keep them from sticking."
